Since iTunes is so dog-slow on Windows, I'm looking for a good alternative that manages podcasts well. Bonus for syncing play counts, ratings, etc.

Edit: I'm not looking for a podcast-only app, I'm looking for a music manager that does well with podcasts.

@Aidan: I see. Might want to re-word the title also, though. –  arathorn Jul 22 '09 at 16:20

MediaMonkey rocks. It can handle your music collection management, podcasts and it syncs with many different devices.

Well I really like the Zune software... It made me buy a Zune!

You might check out Songbird. Not only will it manage your local music, but it is very nice for finding music on the internet.

I don't have enough points to respond directly to a comment yet...

Although MediaMonkey is great, please be aware that even the latest version of MediaMonkey no longer synchronizes with the iPhone under the 3.0 OS. It's read-only. It worked fine with the 2.x OS, and it still works fine with my older generation iPods.

That doesn't seem to be the case anymore with the latest release: mediamonkey.com/news/2009/11/19/… –  Dan Esparza Feb 9 '10 at 22:52
    
Yep, I saw that. It'll always be a game of catch-up, of course. Thanks. –  Mark Freedman Feb 10 '10 at 3:30

I used http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ for a while, I found it quite attractive and useful. Now I use itunes, because I'm lazy.
